GoGo Getaway Class Selection Process
The details of the classes will be emailed to you in PDF format a few weeks before the retreat and posted on the dedicated Facebook Group too. You will be asked to email your 1st choice for some sessions, by a specified date.  Our new format allows everyone to have their first choice. Within the Class Details document you will be given details of the photo sizes used on the example layouts, any additional items you will need for that class and the Arrow Rating will be specified.

GoGo Arrow Rating
Classes are rated according to how much cutting and intricate work is involved. You will find the GoGo Arrow Rating on the class PDFs which will be emailed to you in advance of the retreat.
1 GoGo arrow = minimum amount of cutting and intricate work 
2 GoGo arrows = moderate amount of cutting and intricate work
3 GoGo arrows = extensive amount of cutting and intricate work

Be Inspired
Each Design Team member sets a challenge for you to take inspiration from. Use your time in between classes to create extra layouts using the challenges to inspire you. Display your layouts on the wall by the end of the weekend for the chance of winning a prize. There is a prize for each challenge so get as many done as possible to increase your chances of winning! Challenges are released one week in advance of the Retreat.
